Increasing innovation and development have helped to improve the technology found in battery storage over the last few years.
Batteries are used to store electricity generated from PV Panels or Wind Generators local to the point of generation. Stored electricity can then be used when it is needed.
SO WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BATTERY STORAGE?
– 24/7 backup protection
It will protect your home during a power cut, keeping your lights, wi-fi and refrigerator running.
– No grid connection?
Electrify your home even if it doesn’t have a national grid connection.
– Reduce your grid costs
Solar is already less expensive than on-grid power.
– No wind or sun?
The battery can store energy for future use.
– Monitor your solar energy use
Receive alerts via your smartphone, and monitor your use in real-time.
We can correctly specify the battery size, storage and usable energy capacity it requires to meet your home’s electricity needs.
If you would like to know more about how you can benefit from battery storage then get in touch with one of our experienced team members. We have extensive knowledge about how they can be installed and what the cost will be – you might even benefit from a grant.
From the initial survey to the final installation, everything is dealt with by our experienced in house team. We have been MCS accredited installing renewable energy systems for over 10 years since 2011, and have been registered as a limited company since 2006.
Did you know you could be eligible for a £6,000 green grant for the installation of a heat pump? In a one off, upfront payment when removing a fossil fuel boiler.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) was introduced earlier this year and it will run till 2025. The aim of the scheme is to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems, heat pumps, to replace their fossil fuel burners.
Am I eligible?
You are eligible for the grant if you live in England or Wales, you own your property and you have an energy performance certificate with no outstanding recommendations for cavity wall or loft insulation.
The grant is not available for social housing, new builds (apart from certain self-builds) or properties that have already had government funding or support for a heat pump or biomass boiler.
How much is the grant?
£5,000 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump.
£6,000 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump.
We are a MCS certified installer, so we can advise on whether you are eligible for the grant. We can also apply for the grant for you.
Air source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the outside air, and a ground source heat pump takes heat from the earth.
The heat from either can then be used to heat the home. Via radiators, underfloor heating systems and they can provide hot water.
Should I choose a air or ground source heat pump?
They are a few factors that you will need to consider when choosing between an air source heat pump or a ground source heat pump, the two mainly being budget and outdoor space.
Ground source heat pumps require the ground to be dug, so it is a more timely and expensive option compared to an air source heat pump, however this means that you will not be able to see any equipment on the outside of your property. The benefits of an air source heat pump are that it is quicker and cheaper to install, as they do not require any land to be dug up. Though they will be mounted on the outside of your property, they look a bit like air conditioning units.
What are the benefits of heat pumps?
Low running costs
Reduces carbon emissions
Long life span
Grants available for installation
Our installers will be able to discuss all of this with you in detail to help find you the right solution. Contact us today:
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a new incentive launched by means of the UK Government to motivate the set up of low-carbon heating systems, such as warmth pumps, over fossil gas boilers.
The scheme is presenting capital provides of £6000 to assist limit the value for households of putting in eco-friendly heating systems. This upfront supply can make the choice of selecting renewable electricity or even less expensive than putting in a fossil gasoline boiler!
With this new scheme, the Government is persevering with to supply extra incentives to improve these choice options via drastically decreasing the preliminary value and installation. Making low carbon heating an extra low-priced and attainable choice for house owners or businesses.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme alongside the low going for walks value and preservation of warmness pumps make them financially attractive as nicely eco-friendly!
WHY IS THE BOILER UPGRADE SCHEME BEING INTRODUCED?
The funding on the scheme is designed to assist house owners to find the money for the upfront charges of low-carbon technologies, such as floor supply warmness pumps and biomass boilers.
Ministers have additionally stated that they hope the scheme will assist to develop purchaser self-assurance in the applied sciences available, in order to improve enterprise demand.
The scheme is a necessary side of supporting the authorities meet its internet zero-emissions goal through 2050, and to assist segment out fossil gas heating in properties of the fuel grid, the authorities has said.
WHY IS THE SCHEME FREE?
Due to climate change, the UK Government is trying to extensively reduce carbon emissions, and changing old, inefficient boilers with modern, A-rated fashions is simply one way they can make a sizeable reduction.
In addition, the effectiveness of current boilers ability they are less expensive to run, considerably supporting to minimize the heating payments of low-income households and these at danger of gas poverty.
However, for many households, the value of obtaining a new boiler can be big and it’s, for this reason, the Government and some of the greatest electricity corporations in the UK grant boiler grants. These allow households to accumulate a backed boiler and, in some cases, a free boiler.
Princes LHS were brilliant from start to finish. When I contacted them I had received a quote from a rival company that did not appear quite right and really wasn't thought through properly. Princes LHS were the opposite of that. From initial discussions to the fitting process itself (solar PV and a Powerwall 2) everything was done very well and ahead of the agreed schedule. We're now happily producing meaningful power even in the depths of winter & the Powerwall means that we get to use all of it.

When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.
I totally recommend them for solar technology

We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.
We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
